Hi all, i'm looking to replace the pickups in my epiphone les paul, but I'm not entirely sure on what I should be looking for (there are just so many different pups to choose from)
I play pretty much everything from jazz to metal, but this guitar will be primarily for rock.
The kind of bands I'd want to emulate would be
Guns n Roses/velvet revolver
AC/DC
The answer
Aerosmith
And other similar bands.
Thanks in advance

any kind of PAF clone so: Gibson burstbuckers, Duncan '59s, dimarzio 36th anniversary PAFs
#3
all the bands you listed above have guitarists who favour more vintage inspired pickups. That's what you should be looking for. Lower output and either alnico 2,3 or 5 magnets
#4
Slash plays -->Seymour Duncan Alnico II.

You could also try other manufacturer's Alnico II..
1. The SG stands for “solid guitar.”
#5
but then alnico 5 mag pickups give you the bite needed for something like ACDC, depends really, could get a pair that have different alnico types

I've heard good things about these, also look into Irongear pickups for cheaper alternatives to SD and dimarzio
